These are records extracted from the "Canso Methodist Circuit"
These are copies of these at the Guysborough County Courthouse Museum.
This list, at the moment contains ONLY records of people either born or living in Whitehead / Yankee Harbour, or that the marriage took place in Whitehead / Yankee Harbour. I do not have the complete register, so there are many gaps.
